Review of the hardback: '... excellent survey of Garrick's literary relations ... most entertaining ...' Times Literary Supplement Review of the hardback: 'The strength of Cunningham's study lies ... in the author's ability to take readers back to a period when Shakespeare's status as a cultural icon was far from secure. Her effort to understand Garrick on his own terms rather than on those of much later generations of critics is a welcome addition to the field of eighteenth-century Shakespeare reception.' Anglistik: International Journal of English Studies Review of the hardback: 'Cunningham's study provokes a thoughtful, focused analysis of a figure central to eighteenth-century culture whose work has received far too little critical attention in recent years.'
